Make a holiday rental home or accommodation in County Clare, Ireland your home away from home

County Clare is a simply amazing place to be. The rugged Atlantic Coastline, marked by the stunning Cliffs of Moher which plummet 700m into the ocean, is a walker’s paradise, and cannot fail to inspire, however many times you make the journey. County Clare, Ireland, is a wonderful destination for those who want to get into the great outdoors, explore the wonderfully friendly little rural villages and fine traditional cultures of rural Ireland. As you may be able to tell, a County Clare cottage is my personal idea of heaven!

Things to do in County Clare, Ireland

The Clare countryside is some of the most remarkable and varied scenery you can find in Ireland. Walking is an absolute delight, and there are amazing sights to be seen in every direction of the compass. The stunning coastline withholds many hidden gems, from great swimming spots to the local dolphin which lives off the coast of Liscannor. Inland, the open expanses of green fields separated by iconic stone walls quickly change to limestone karsts, and the alien scenery of the Burren, a rocky landscape of caves, rare alpine fauna and underground streams. Many walks will take you by unexpected archaeological sites dating as far back as 5,000 years. Almost the finest part of walking from a County Clare cottage is the satisfaction of warming up in front of an open fire in one of Clare’s pubs with a pint, talking to the ever hospitable locals.

golf is a very important game in County Clare, Ireland. There are many magnificent championship courses around, including the delightful links course in Lahinch. There are many courses available to play from a County Clare holiday rental, as well as plenty of 9 hole courses and pitch and putt games to enjoy from County Clare accommodation.

Sailing, windsurfing and surfing also thrive in County Clare. Accommodation on the coastline is wonderful for allowing you to pick and choose when to head to the beach, board in hand and attempt to conquer the Atlantic swells which crash onto the sand. Many of the beaches are beautifully flat, meaning that not only can you swim and paddle a long way out (taking care of currents signalled by a system of flags on the beach), but the beaches themselves are host to games of football and hurling throughout the year.

If you are lucky enough to be staying in a County Clare cottage during the Gaelic Games season, it is well worth going to see a game. Although Gaelic football and hurling may be completely alien to English visitors, they provide an excellent spectacle and you will get caught up with the crowds.

Equestrian sports are hugely popular in County Clare too, and if you are hoping to take a riding holiday from County Clare accommodation, you will be spoilt for choice.

With a very temperate climate, County Clare has one of the longest growing seasons in Ireland. Average monthly temperatures range from 6˚C in January to 15˚C in July. Rain is not uncommon, so it is a good idea to pack a jacket when you pack for your accommodation in County Clare.

Inside was well decorated, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed meals around the large kitchen table, cooking in the spacious kitchen and sleeping in comfortable beds with amazing ocean and farm field views. Lahinch is a great little seaside town perfectly situated near some of the most spectacular sites in Ireland. Being just a bit outside of the city was perfect for spending some time with friends, but close enough to enjoy sightseeing, shopping and a fun meal at O'Looney's. Plenty of room for eight!
